This has been in our family for years;(My mom is 57 and she has had it since she was little.) I actually can’t remember a Thanksgiving or Christmas without this cake. We aren’t sure where this recipe came from, but it is loved by all. We have always called it our family secret. The butter sauce could be used for many other things and you could substitute the cranberries with other fruit. But, it is so good just like it is. The funny thing is, the Butter Sauce looks like gravy and every year somone ends up putting it on there mashed potatoes!
